Suffocation Touring New Zealand in April 2024

Suffocation Touring New Zealand in April 2024

Samantha Cheong / C.C. / Monday 6th November, 2023 9:00AM

US death metal pioneers Suffocation have today announced a triple date tour of Aotearoa, directly following Friday's launch of their ninth studio long player Hymns From The Apocrypha via Nuclear Blast. Forging their own path with 1991's landmark debut album Effigy of the Forgotten, the veteran Long Island crew of Terrance Hobbs (guitars), Derek Boyer (bass), Charles Errigo (guitars), Eric Morotti (drums), and new recruit Ricky Myers (vocals) have attracted devotees across the globe for their inhumanly growling voices, turbo guitar skills and breathtaking breakdowns. Their new collection was assembled over a month at their local Hobbs and Boyers InLine Studio with production by Christian Donaldson (Beneath the Massacre, Ingested) and Dominic Grimard (Cryptopsy, Shadow of Intent). The battle-scarred pros of almost 35 years have played over 2,000 shows globally in various lineup configurations, and this record is blazing a metallic trail that zips past our ears. Smash play and experience the brutality live in WellingtonChristchurch and Auckland this coming April — brought to you by Valhalla Touring...

"Perseverance isn't easy... playing aggressive music is in our blood. Being a live band with actual recordings that are back-to-the-roots of being a real band — not a digital representation of over-edited stuff in today's overwhelmed music industry—shows who we are. SUFFOCATION, as a live band, is key to us all. I would've never thought that this would be a 35-year endeavor, but it's great that it has! We have met so many bands, fans, and friends out there. It's inspiring to see that kind of support. Hopefully, we'll keep everyone paying attention to SUFFOCATION for another 100 years!

We’re coming to mash you into the dirt and drop some serious American Death Metal for your ears – hope to see all you death metal slam-infested freaks in the pit!” — Terrance Hobbs
